Left a message on his voice mail, haven't heard anything back yet. Hopefully I will tomorrow, if not I'll have to call back again.

Work was work. Nothing much to say about it really. Then after work the FWiB called, which is always a Good Thing. And I went to my meeting, which was very good and allowed me to share some of this crap.

I'm a bit worried about Bjorn, he isn't eating well. I may take him to the vet Friday.

Gratitude List:

1. My meetings and the people there.

2. Got through calling the contractor.

3. The FWiB.

4. Mango slices with lunch.

5. Cooler weather.

6. My cats.

So, the wedding weekend

Mostly it was lovely, but there were parts that sucked. The good parts were seeing members of the family I don't get to see very often. The wedding itself was beautiful, and the reception dinner/barbecue the day before was delicious and fun. The downside? Stuff with the cottage. Betsy was snide about it as always, and Laurie was a bitch. And somehow I got assigned to take care of making an appointment with a guy to fix the roof of the living room, the kitchen floor, and a bunch of other stuff. I got a name and a number and will call him tomorrow to come inspect the cottage while I'm up there in August.

I came home Sunday rather than staying with The Kid again because she had to work Monday and it would have been a hassle getting me to the casino bus Monday. So on Sunday we drove back as far as Binghamton and she left me at the bus terminal there and I took a bus to NYC.

I got home and found everything all right. Except with [personal profile] mashfanficchick and her mother. Their car was stolen back on Wednesday night/Thursday morning. So I went over there today after breakfast (well, brunch) at Dunkin' Donuts and went out with them to the 112 precinct to correct a paperwork mistake. On the way back we stopped at Martha's Country Kitchen for snacks. I got a frozen Nutella hot chocolate.

The FWiB called while we were there and we talked. Then we started back to [personal profile] mashfanficchick's place, and after we got off the bus and started walking back... THERE WAS THEIR CAR! On the same block but other side of the street, and down at the other end of the block, but undamaged and with everything still in it!

So we celebrated with sushi, cause nothing says "The car is back" like raw fish on rice! We can't figure out what happened because although nothing was taken things had been moved in the car, and they were very sure about where they left it. So someone took it, rummaged through it, and returned it.

Anyway, they brought me home and now here I am, ready for bed.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. The Kid.

3. They got their car back.

4. Friendly family.

5. Sushi.

6. Cool weather.

Back home

Depression is not easy; depression is a monster you don't want to fight.
because you don't fight a thing in front of you that you can run away from; you fight yourself and nobody knows you better; nobody else knows how to hurt you worst.

losing someone close to you; not having the one who was your north is awful, the need to join them is so strong, add adictions and I bet you'll be ready for a coffin.
why you? why you who were the voice of my teen years? why you the one concert I enjoyed the most,.
Why you couldn't fight one more day, one more night...  one more battle.?

its over now,  and I kinda envy you, because as someone once stated, when you die it's over for you, but is never over for those who stay here; without you.

hope you found peace in the end; and hope you don't remember the pain, (I know there was some pain) 
wherever you go, wish you calm peace and rest.
Good Bye the voice of my pain, the sound of my tears, good bye Chester Bennington.



 
 
Clutching my cure
I tightly lock the door
I try to catch my breath again
I hurt much more than any time before
I have no options left again
I don't want to be the one the battles always choose
'cause inside I realize that I'm the one confused

Here at the Kid's

The day went very well. I'm posting from my phone so will be brief. Work was ok and went well. Took the train to the Port Authority and made it with time to spare. The FWIB called and that took my extra time. The bus trip was uneventful. Now cozy at their house.

Off to the wedding tomorrow

So, although I will try and post from my phone while I'm away, I don't know if I'll be able to, so this may be my last post til Monday night.

Anyway today work was frustrating as it was the third consecutive day of wonkiness with the cataloging program. Very annoying.

After work the FWiB called, and we taked until i met up with [personal profile] mashfanficchick and her mother. We went to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner, made a quick trpi to target, and then went to Carvel for ice cream. We stopped to pick up my laundry on the way home.

Once I was home I packed for the trip. I hope I haven't forgotten anything, of course I still have to pack things I need tonight or tomorrow morning, but aside from that the only thing I need to do before the wedding is my nails. I Naired my legs, and they look good.

Anyway that's all, and I have to hurry to bed.

Gratitude List:

1. Friends.

2. Nair.

3. The FWiB.

4. Oldest Brother is OK (his phone glitched and I got quite worried til he called me)

5. Found the jewlery I was looking for.

6. Trip tomorrow!

Busy evening

Work was OK, except that for the second day in a row the catalog system was screwed up. But we survived that.

After work the FWiB called, and we talked. While we talked I got money out of the bank, got a new Metrocard, and got my face waxed. The face waxing was done during a haitus in the call, he hhung up and then called back after 15 miinutes. Then I had pizza for dinner and went to my meeting, which was sadly just M and me.

After the meeting, The Kid called to talk about this weekend. She sent me some pictures of hats and things.

Then after I got off the phone with her, I fed the cats and took my laundry down to the laundromat and dropped it off. And then it was time to make my nightly call to Oldest Brother (I don't generally bother to mention it but I call him every night.)

So I was kept busy from the time i left work to now.

Gratitude List:

1. Weekend wedding coming up.

2. The FWiB.

3. The Kid.

4. My meetings and the people there.

5. Good pizza.

6. Healthy cats.

Went to work, made it on time. Worked, nothing special.

After work, the FWiB called and we talked. Which was good.

The only thing of note that happened though was that when I got back to my apartment building the front door electronic scanner thingie wasn't working so I couldn't get in until someone called up to their apartment and had someone buzz them in. So I didn't dare go out again tonight to take laundry down for fear I wouldn't be able to get in again.Hopefully it'll be OK tomorrow, and I'll bring laundry down after my meeting.

Got the group photo from the winery trip. Looks good.

And that's it.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. Didn't have to wait outside long.

3. The purple flowers I pass on my way to work.

4. Mango slices with lunch.

5. Quiet day.

6. Friends.

Ice cream day

Slept very late, then got up and puttered around for awhile. Washed my hair and cut it into bangs, which I'd been meaning to do for awhile. I think it looks much better this way and I'm sorry I didn't do it sooner.

The FWiB called and we talked, he's feeling better but suffering from "chemo head", fuzziness from the effects of the chemo.

[profile] mashfnficchick called and asked did i was to go out for ice cream for National Ice Cream Day. Why yes, yes I did. So she and her mother picked me up and we did Baskin and Robbins, and Carvel. Yummy. I feel the need for real food though so I'll probably nuke something after I get done with this.

And that's pretty much the day.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. My hair came out looking good.

3. Ice cream.

4. Day to do nothing.

5. My turtle.

6. Sleeping late.

Oh my it's late!

So the winery trip today was a lot of fun, and it was nice seeing people.

So here's how it went. After I posted last night [personal profile] mashfanficchick and her mother picked me up and we went shopping for what we needed to bring today. Then we went to her place, had ice cream, and went to bed.

Got up this morning, and ran a few errands first. Then we set off. Got into a huge traffic tie-up over the Gothels bridge so we ended up being late, but not too badly. The winery, Working Dog Winery, was having an event, which is why we went today, music and food. The band was really good, and the food, provided by Jersey Devil Barbecue, was delicious and not too expensive. We did a tasting and I bought a bottle of blueberry wine and a souvenir glass.

When the band finished and everyone started leaving, we said good-bye too. Then we went to a Wegman's supermarket and had something to drink and cooled off. The FWiB called and we talked, though not long.

Then [personal profile] mashfanficchick did some shopping. And then we headed back to New York.

Went back to her place for dinner, and then they brought me back here. All is well, and soon i will go to bed.

A great day with great people, and fun.

Gratitude List:

1. Friends.

2. The FWiB.

3. Day out.

4. Wine.

5. All well here.

6. Bed soon!

Therapy day

Went to therapy this morning, which was good. And my therapist told me not to worry about the lettr I got saying the insurance company was going to stop paying, she said that the hospital was working with the insurance company to work things out. So that's good.

Work was OK, quiet, and for some reason I was hardly scheduled at the desk at all. So very relaxing.

After work I went to Boston Market as usual on Fridays. The FWiB called and we had a nice, though short, conversation. And then I went to my meeting and that was very good.

Got home after and fed the cats early, and started packing for my overnight at [personal profile] mashfanficchick's tonight, and the winery trip tomorrow.

Now waiting for them to pick me up and we shall go shopping.

Gratitude List:

1. My meetings and the people there.

2. The FWiB.

3. Don't need to find a new mental health place.

4. Friends.

5. The rain didn't get too bad while I was out in it.

6. The rain cooled the heat down.

Normal sort of day

I did a gaming program like last week for the Karate summer camp. Nothing else of note.

The FWiB called but only for a very short time, he had had his second day of this month's chemo and was feeling sick. *sigh* It only gets worse as it goes on, I'm afraid.

E-mailed with [personal profile] mashfanficchick about plans for tomorrow and Saturday. But I will be coming back here before I go out Friday night to her place, so I will have time to update my journal. Looking forwrd to this outing a lot!

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. [personal profile] mashfanficchick

3. Air conditioning.

4. The rain avoided me again.

5. The purple flowers i pass on my way to work are blooming again.

6. Sunflowers.

Carvel night

So I should say that last night after I posted here I saw something sad on facebook, Mrs. Mullane, our next-door neighbor at the cottage, died yesterday. I called Oldest Brother to let him know, because he was awake at his security job, and I texted The Kid, thinking she was asleep, but she wasn't and texted me back. So I arranged that we would send flowers from all of us, and that's what I did today from work. So I'm sad about that because she was a sweet person and a very good neighbor to us.

But anyway, aside from that, the day was pretty normal. After work the FWiB called, he was feeling OK but "strange" after his chemo today, and we didn't talk long. Then I went out with [personal profile] mashfanficchick and her mother to Carvel and then Applebee's.

Made plans for the winery trip Saturday. I'm sleeping over at her house Friday so I may not be able to post that night.

Gratitude List:

1. Friends.

2. Good neighbors.

3. Carvel.

4. Flowers.

5. Didn't get rained on... managed to miss all the intermitant rain.

6. Facebook.
